I don't have the best luck at coffee houses so I have to ask which coffee to order. The woman at The Java Moose was very helpful and I enjoyed my cup of coffee immensely. As a side note, when they give you a cup...More

This is not a Caribou coffee shop - but - it is very similar. All the popular types of coffee and made to perfection. You can dine IN or sit OUT on the patio. They also have souvenior chop.

We stopped by on our way out of town. Yummy hot chocolate and good lattes with lots of flavor options. We also had the chocolate chip and mocha chip muffins that were moist

We went back twice during our stay just off the Gunflint Trail. Great coffee and light/potentially-healthier lunch options! It looked like they served ice cream also, although we did not order any. We highly recommend a visit. Mocha and Americana coffee orders were good.

This is nicely located next to the Northwest Trading post. I had a latte and it was perfect, a touch of bitterness up front with a creamy smooth finish. The two servers were very friendly and helpful with suggestions of what and where to go.
